Channel 4's press release said,

"Penelope will preside over heats, semi-finals and final, with a panel of expert judges deciding which villages will progress through the rounds before revealing their winner, based on the following criteria: Appearance; History & Heritage; Village Events; Activities; and Visitor Experience.
"They will award their chosen village with the accolade of Village of the Year and £10,000 to be used for a worthwhile community project."
